  • First Shot [Open Spar]

    A lot had to be adjusted to in this new life, Torgeir mused as the shuttle descended into the atmosphere of the training moon. He had to lie a lot to the other mechanics and servants in the quarters that he had been housed in. Keeping an eye on the others that did all the menial tasks for the palace was not only a full time job in itself, but also gave him a unique perspective on how the people saw those in charge. The typical opinions of nobles in power were rife during meal time and breaks, but for the most part everyone seemed rather content.

    Steel blue eyes scanned across the green carpet below as it moved towards them with speed, wondering more now about the origins of the Penumbra and how they expected to keep everything they did for the galaxy in the background. They had survived this long, so he had no doubts that a few had to disappear from time to time. He only hoped that he wasn't asked to do that, especially now since he lived among these people. But, he would do what he had to to ensure that their cause remained secret.

    Finally setting down, Torgeir rose from his seat and walked towards the doorway as the ramp lowered, allowing the cool, clean air into the shuttle. Stepping down to the ground, the Corellian had come to love the outdoors that seemed to be in ample supply on Ruusan and it's moon. Something that he had to go to special parks in Coronet City to find. As the shuttle rose back into the air, the newly recruited neophyte moved to a neighboring clearing and began stretching for a day of sparring. He knew that one way to expand on the Force abilities that he had been trained in was to practice them in conjunction with sparring with the practise blade that he had been given.

    The moon was a perfect training place. Nadgkema had learned to love the outdoors as much as luxury when she was a child. Extensive survival training on the wild Dxun moon had made sure that she knew the value of practice and skill honing.

    She had arrived when it was barely dawn to the moon of Ruusan. She had been taking a break from all her running, Force practice and other exercise for the last while. As often, she had perched herself high in one of the ancient trees in the area.

    She eventually felt another presence after one of the shuttles had landed and departed again. She discreetly moved and peered as a man she hadn't met yet. With grace, she leaped to the ground, walking up to where he was.

    "Greetings." She simply said, curious to find out who he was.

      Stretching his legs, steel-blue eyes rose to the exotic beauty who strolled towards him, her lithe frame cutting through the tall grass and prompted a grin. Her greeting casual, he wondered now if she was also part of the Covenant or not.

      "How's it going," he pushed himself up, his toned and naturally shaped metal arm in full view now. "Didn't expect to see anyone else up here," he stated, testing to see if she was indeed part of the new group that he had joined or just a vacationing noble from Ruusan. Though the rumor that most thought these moons were haunted should have scared most off.

        Nadgkema's sharp gaze took in the prosthetic limb, but made no comment about it. "This is a most suitable place to stay in good shape, away from prying eyes." She replied in an even voice, her senses cast out upon the stranger.

        "I am Nadgkema An'Telkis. I don't remember having seen you around the palace yet." She faintly canted her head to the side, feeling his Force signature in the realm of her uncanny perceptions, and she didn't hide her own, the tacit understanding they both belonged to the Penumbra.

          Her statement already confirming his suspicions, the newly acquired neophyte nodded politely and pushed himself up. "Pleasure, Nadgkema. I'm Torgeir," he flashed a smile at her, "Gorgeous name. Never heard that before, though I haven't been anywhere else other than here and Corellia, so," he shrugged, chuckling. Steel-blue eyes could tell that she was agile and no doubt capable with the hilt that he now spied within her gear.

            "Well met, Torgeir." Nadgkema nodded and smiled to his compliment about her name. "It was rather unheard of even on my home world of Onderon. It has Hapan roots." She explained with a proud glint in her eyes.

            "As famous as Corellia is, I think I only once stopped by this planet." She caught his eyes drift to her belt where her lightsaber hilt was clipped to.

            "Would you care for a training partner?"

              Hapan, that was another world that he had only ever heard of, especially their vaunted battle dragons which had only been seen in holovids when he was a kid. Tech manuals and periodicals about engineering feats and up and coming projects were always on the break room table back at work and he found himself lost in them sometimes.

              He nodded at her comment about Corellia, "Coronet's easy to get lost in, but the rest of the planet's really beautiful actually. Lot of resorts and nice beaches, mountains for hiking and stuff," though he had never done half of that, Torgeir had planned on it before he and Jacob had met. Her offer for a sparring partner prompted a grin and nod as he pushed himself up.

              "Sure, but take it easy on me." He removed the hilt from his belt and eyed it like a foreign object. "Only ever messed around with this thing once before now, I'm usually better with my fists."

                "I will keep this in mind shall I return to Corellia." Nadgkema replied with a slight nod. She liked having hiking opportunities, as much as luxurious resorts. She had versatile tastes, one could say. It matched her complex personality.

                She chuckled at the way he looked at the hilt at his own belt. "If you'd rather we practice with unarmed combat, this is a possibility too. Otherwise, I can do my best not to skewer you." She thought it only polite to offer the choice to him, as she was fine with either.

                  Her veiled threat made him laugh, never hearing a girl say that before. That was the initial response though, knowing that many in the Penumbra were here a lot longer than him and obviously knew a lot more. The offer for unarmed combat prompted steel-blue orbs to his metal arm, then back, "I may be at an unfair advantage in that department," he stated then shook his head and sighed. "Nah, I need to learn how to use this thing, so."

                  Raising the hilt, he ignited the saber and felt the power in his hands as the blade sprang to life. Standing a bit awkwardly, Torgeir did his best not to show how unfamiliar he was with this thing, pride being one of the Corellian's main traits. "En garde, or whatever."

                    "Unfair is part of life. Learning how to make do is good to sharpen survival skills." Nadgkema replied with a dark grin. "Let's do this." The brunette took her hilt and ignited the grey blade.

                    She moved with grace and precision. She slipped into a Makashi opening stance. "En garde." Without further ado, she lunged forward, going for an upward slash at the man's neck.

                      Dodging the slash, Torgeir did his best to push her blade away with his own, then did what came naturally and aimed a punch at her with his metallic hand, not thinking until after the deed as done...

                        Nadgkema was taught how to use everything she had when fighting. She was glad to see that Torgeir relied on his natural strength too. Thanks to her augmented speed of movement, she rolled to the side to avoid the punch that came at her.

                        Getting back to her feet, she used a violent Force push at the man, before rushing back to him with a horizontal slash.

                          Moving towards her as she avoided the punch - not a surprise - the sudden blast of energy that knocked him on his back that did surprise him; And angered the Corellian that hated to lose. Pushing himself up, the neophyte raised his blade too late and nearly lost his head, ducking as Nadgkema's blade seared his longer hair. Being crouched, he rushed towards her and attempted a tackle...

                            When Torgeir rushed at her and tackled her, Nadgkema could have avoided it, but she played it differently. Given the situation, her blade switched down as he pinned her down, but she used the momentum and the Force to give herself aided speed and she butted head with his, before attempting to roll them over so she'd gain the upper hand.

                              Now wrestling, Torgeir did his best to grab her weapon wrist, holding it away so he could pin her and hope to end this contest quickly. What he didn't expect was the headbutt, though his own forehead being a bit thicker, the Corellian wasn't as fazed as he should have been. Though the shot did stun him long enough for her to roll the neophyte onto his back.

                              "Hmm," he grinned. "I'm enjoying this more and more."
